Hum,.. as I said, not really just change the value of MACH_MIPS_OLIVETTI :)

Was it you ?? :):)

Another subject:
I had split init_IRQ() in arch/mips/kernel/irq.c in
init_IRQ_jazz(), init_IRQ_dec(), init_IRQ_arc(). Ah yes in my attempt
to re-organize the mips_machgroup stuff I made a group called ARC with
for now hold Deskstation boxes, and the is also a  Jazz boxes group 
To be clearer: each group is a single bit im mips_machgroup.

mips_machgroup:
     0000000000000000000000000000000  group unknown        
     0000000000000000000000000000001  group ARC 
     0000000000000000000000000000010  group DEC
     0000000000000000000000000000100  group Jazz
     ???????????????????????????????  group SGI ?
     ???????????????????????????????  group SNI ? (if nedded)

And then each models in each group use in turn 0,1,2,3,... for mips_machtype.
So for Dec we'll be able to identify all this 3mxx, pmax,... boxes
with their original/Digital model number.

Comments ? 

Ralf, as soon I would be able to make bickel running again, I'll send
you all this.

Cheers, Stoned.
